Faucetworks LLC is developing the Faucet™ artificial intelligence diagnostic (AID) medical device.
The Faucet AID will diagnose routine cases of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) and other neurological emergencies autonomously, and it will refer complex or uncertain cases to on-call physicians who can then take over evaluation of the patient by video conferencing connection. This can be done in the ambulance, enabling immediate treatment of AIS patients with existing standard-of-care therapies that are currently only available in hospitals. Patients with other neurological emergencies that can be treated in the field could similarly benefit from the Faucet.
